Reviewer: Jersey JD - - April 28, 2010
Subject: JUST BEFORE NIXON RESIGNED
I was at this show. It was a bizarre evening. All the sons and daughters and some parents of the Washington polatariots were at this show. When they did US Blues, the place went nuts. Interesting mix between board and Jerry Moore's audience tape. It's great because it really shows the crowd as great and rowdy as they were, yet quiet during the quiet songs. Nixon resigned about a week after this. Phew!
Bizarre aftermath was driving back to our friends in Williamsburg and finding out they got busted. Icing on the cake on this one: On the warrant: 1) wrong st.address. 2) Wrong discription of the house 3) Wrong location of the house. To top that off- NONE of the evidence was brought into court. Any of that would have been thrown out of any DECENT court. But Neil Young nailed it. This was the south. Screw Lynard Skynard.

Subject: More than just ok!
I don't agree with the other reviewers here, this show is great! Despite a couple technical flaws and flubs by the band (isn't it hard to find a show without?) this show is GREAT! Listen to the 13:18 He's Gone, Keith plays the key part a little differently than usual and adds an interesting warmth to the song. The fantastic He's Gone>Whaft Rat jam will melt your head! The amazing sound of this matrix recording does this performance justice! Keith goes CRAZY on the keys during the Other One, just listen! It seems like throughout the whole show he changed his chord progression here and there from what he normally played. I think this might be the best Other One they played in '74! As for the bands performance, I don't think there is a bad show in '74. I've never listened to a show from then and thought, "oh this is not near as good as the others". Every show in '74 cooks! This one is just as trippy-dippy as the rest, I would say it even stands out! A Jerry Moore AUD mixed perfectly with a SBD; nothing better! The matrix gets all the depth and levels of the instruments just right, along with the feel of being out a few rows in the crowd, right in front of the WALL OF SOUND! You really don't get a feel for the Wall till you hear an AUD and get what the audience heard. This is a great show!

Subject: Better than average
The mix here is pretty outstanding, though spotty in places, not alot. The keyboard sound in Other One> Spanish Jam> Wharf Rat is memorable. Very tasty. Definitely worth the time.

Subject: Not Bad
I've been listening to this show at work for the past few hours, and I am leaving this show with some fond memories. I don't think it's anything outstanding, but I do think the matrix sound is better than average. There is a good mix of crowd and music.

There are several minor screwups in this show, along with decent mixing, which makes me think this is a good show but not a great one. Hence the 3/5 star rating.
